The long national nightmare of “Medal of Honor” is finally over, or at least on reprieve for the time being: after bad marketing, dismal reviews, and a potential leak of classified information, Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore finally put the horse out to pasture.
In a conference call last month (caught by Polygon), Moore called the game “a miss,” explaining that “this one is behind us now. We are taking Medal of Honor out of the rotation.”
I liked the last 'Medal of Honor'. There was a nice down to earth flow to the reboot which gave it a stark contrast to most modern shooters that seem to focus more and more about making a scene rather threading a narrative. It blended a sense of place among the greater story while still making you feel like a total badass. This latest trailer promises more nail-biting action, with a bombastic car chase through Karachi by a couple of Tier 1 operatives.
EA touts MOH as one of the most authentic combat experiences available in video games often stressing the lengths to which they work with these elite soldiers. Check out how they replicate the daunting task of combat driving after the jump.
